Weston school celebrates Church inspection verdict of "excellent"
Weston St Mary Primary School is celebrating another milestone in its amazing turnaround after being judged "excellent" in a Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS).
The school was judged "good" by the educational inspectorate, Ofsted, in July last year - marking a significantleap from its "inadequate" rating in September 2017.
Head of school Rachael Walker said: "It has been an exciting two-year journey for Weston St Mary since it was taken over by executive head teacher Alison Flack, and we have worked hard to improve standards in the school.
"As well as focusing on helping pupils to flourish academically, we have also looked to provide our pupils with excellent character education, helping our children to develop into confident, conscientious citizens.
"We believe that Weston St Mary is a place of nurture, where children have the space to express their individuality, and we are delighted that the (SIAMS) report reflects this.
"We are pleased that one of our development points is to support other Church schools in Lincolnshire and we have already started working with local schools in order to do this."
The inspection found the school had a "transformational impact" on pupils, their families and the wider community.
